Drink Deep - Chloe Neill I was very disappointed that Ethan died in Hard Bitten. As frustrated as I was about that, I have read other books where characters that I loved were killed off (i.e. Kisten in the For a Few Demons More and Matalina in Black Magic Sanction by Kim Harrison). But you know what, those characters were able to move on and so was I. The author had a plan and the character grew and I loved them all the more for what they were going through. In this book, I feel that Ms. Neill turned her back on her characters by bringing Ethan back. I don't know, maybe there is more to it and she has a plan, but it doesn't seem that way to me at this point. I will read the next book to see where this leads, but I'm not optimistic at this point.
